    Thank you guys for all the help! I took my watch to watch to Mr. Lee at 24 hour watch and clockworks in Arlington, Virginia, who did an incredible job. Even replaced the corroded spring-bar with an Omega component. As per your advice I didn't get it polished or anything, just serviced, and it looks incredible just having been lightly cleaned. I'd like to offer you all my deepest thanks for helping my inexperienced self do the best by this watch, and present a couple pictures of it on my wrist.

    Looks great, wear it and enjoy it!

    Ah you're in my neighborhood (Springfield VA). Congrats on the watch. Maybe it's me but I'd replace the crystal and keep the original just incase. I don't know as much about keeping value for watches as nice as that but from a usability stance I think it's a tad bit hard to read (maybe the glare). Either way enjoy it! Great story, history, and watch.

    It is the glare! It actually reads really nicely, but it photographed better this way! I'll keep that in mind though.

    Beautiful watch and thanks for posting the pics. From what I can see in the pictures, I'd leave the watch as is; maybe switch out the band for a leather strap. But aside from that, the watch looks pretty damn good to me. Thanks for sharing.

    “Automatic” is just another term for “self-winding”, meaning the watch winds itself using a weight inside the watch that oscillates to put tension on the mainspring through the random motion of the watch wearer’s arm. Batteries not included — or needed."

    I'm late to the party (new to the forum) but that is a acrylic crystal similar to whats found on the Speedmaster Pro's so you can gently polish it with some polywatch and it should look like new. If you're worried about getting crazy you can tape off the bezel before you polish.
